Unfortunately the whole cabin had a terribile pee smell and I couldn't sleep because of that. The bathroom was dirty, with pee stains. The funiture was very nice, it could have been a perfect stay but the price was way too high for what you get. The surroundings were quiet and the position good. Jaymie is super nice and kind....

We are so sorry you had a bad experience here with us. The smell in that cottage was from the carpets that had just been cleaned. Apparently not enough of the water was extracted - when that happens, sometimes we can get a temporary bad smell. We have passed on your concerns regarding the bathroom to housekeeping. It was certainly...

AWESOME!!!!! We spent 10 days in cottage 6 this summer and let me tell you, our family had a great stay. We enjoyed using the crystal clear pool every day and loved playing pool and ping pong at the game shelter. The FREE wifi was a big hit with the teenagers we had with us. This was not our first...

We came for a long weekend with friends and our kids before everyone has to head back to school. We booked a place at the cottages because it was cost effective and close to everything we wanted to do. Given the cost per night, we didn't expect perfection, but we also didn't expect to find a used diabetic needle stick...

Ashley, I am so sorry you had a negative experience at our resort. Contrary to what you said, we were concerned that you said you were stuck with a needle - you were never told not to worry about it by either of us. Dave spent considerable time researching what would need to be done, but you had already done...

Excellent stay. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The cottages are very conveniently located to the pool, playground, and game shelter. My son and I enjoyed shooting pool and playing air hockey in the evenings. The price was reasonable. We plan to go back again.

We had a family reunion here. This was the perfect place. Cabins were close, playground, pavilion - were right smack in the middle, which was excellent for kid wrangling... The pool was a good size and accommodated all of us..... Great Choice!

My girlfriend and I took an Impromptu trip to Land Between the Lakes for two nights on our way to St. Louis. The cottages are fantastic value for the price and i could have easily stayed a week if we had more time. Be sure to check out some of the family - run restaurants in town, or a quick...

If you are going to be in the Kentucky Lake area, you have to stay with Dave and Jaymi here. It is Clean, quiet and very reasonably priced. But, be sure to book ahead. They fill up quickly.
